Telos Growcast is a next generation, universal lighting controller that helps growers to save energy and grow better plants. Growcast is compatible with many existing grow lights from major manufacturers. Wirelessly connect to Growcast and control the Precise PPF output (dimming) of your grow light. Say goodbye to mechanical timers by applying on/off timing schedules with an optional sunrise and sunset feature. Growcast doesn’t need an internet connection to work and is instead programmed locally using the secure & encrypted Telos Mesh App, available for Android and iPhone. The device has a simple plug and play set up and connects directly to the existing 1-10V dimming port available on most grow lights.
Growcast uses a new, completely decentralised bluetooth control technology called Telos Mesh. Simply plug your device in and tap “add” in the Telos app and the networks created.
Each new Growcast added to the network increases the range forwarding on message to other devices rather than reporting back to a central router or controller

The Growcast doesn’t use proprietary connections that force you to buy a specific brand of grow lights. Telos’s goal was to make a universal controller that could connect to any dimmable light on the market.
Right now most growers are using dimmers that display a percentage that is completely inaccurate to the actual amount of light output their setting. The Precise PPFD feature maps measured photometric data to your grow room and calculates the average PPFD value across the canopy in real time.
Growcast sets the light output using quantifiable data and provides power consumption and efficiency monitoring.
